Quilt and Craft fair presented by the Needles and Pins

The Needles and Pins group belongs to our guild and organized this day to raise money for our National Festival in 2013.  Ladies, I have to congratulate you on a job well done.  We bought our tickets for entrance, tea, lunch and kits beforehand and this oiled the gears to ensure everything ran smooth.
We were welcomed by Olivia at the reception desk.
Each of us received a little goodie bag for attending and I think most quilters turn to kids here, not being able to wait to see what would be inside.
An array of vendors welcomed us and it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning.  Behind the vendors were quilts on display making you want to continue doing what you enjoy most… quilting!









Now it wasn't just all lazing around as several mini workshops were held in different classrooms and this too turned out lovely, making something small, quick and easy.










Nelia Venter, one of the workshop teachers, helping a‘student’, Doretha.





Here ‘tannie’ Magriet and her granddaughter show off the flowers they made.

Now these 2 ladies wanted to make money for the vendors so badly that they thought standing under a lamppost would earn them some.  Hope you made something Wilna and Sonja!
We also had a very special treat in that the students of the Central University of Technology, where this event was held, gave us a very relaxing back and neck massage.

Hope you made lots of money ladies, we do need this!
